Cumberland river was higher at Burkesville than it had been since 1890. Itreaehed the square. It is reported that stave and lumber dealers lost heavily. There was no train at Greensburg for several days. The railroad track at one point between Campbellsville and Greensburg, on one stretch, was, covered with watei four or five extending three miles. It is reported from Greensburg that Judge W. G. Howell lost thirty hogs and six horses. A great deal of damage was done on Casy's creek, this county A few famlies at Burkesville had to move out of their homes. On Butler's Fork, in the southern portion of this county, farmers lost a feet-deep- Kentucky's Tobacco Crop. Should Keep Name in Paper. No busieess man in any town should allow a newspaper published in his town to go without his name mentioned somewhere in its columns. This applies to all kinds of business general store, dry goods store, groceries, furniture dealers, professional men, and in fact all classes of business men. This does not mean that you should have a whole or half or even a quarter page ad in every issue of the paper but your name and business should be mentioned if you do not use more than a two line space. A stranger picking up a newspaper should be able to tell just what business is represented in a town by looking at the business mentioned in the paper. This is the best pssslble town advertising. The man who does not advertise his business does an injustice to himself and his town. He is the man who expects the paper to do most of the boosting for his town. The man who insists on sharing the bus iness that comes to a town but refuses to advertise his business is not doing his share of the boosting. The life of any town depends up on the live, wideawake and liberal businessmen in it. Corydon Marriage License.

Russell Creek was two and a half feet higher here than ever before known, and all other water courses in the county, even the smaller ones, were out of banks and spread until they looked like large rivers All day Tuesday people were constantly moving from the square to the creek, and many believed that the bridge at thU place would not hold out against the turbulent waters. By two o'clock in the afternoon Tuesday the water had reached the bridge, and before night it was runuing two feet deep through it. It cut across the bridge on both sides, and on the far side much of the current turned, which evidently saved the structure. Wednesday the creek had fallen and buggies, and automobiles and wagons passed over the bridge. At Plum Point, in this county, the iron bridge, built seven years ago at an expense of five thousand dollars, washed away and lodged on an island a few hundred yards below. It is estimated that it will cost the county one thousand dollars to replace it. The bridge across Russell's creek, one mile from town, known as the Harris bridge, was in great danger, but it was not moved, but the approach from this side was disturbed and there was a considerable washout. The bridge at Milltown was chained and saved. Gradyville that was visited by a flood June 7, 1907, escaped this time. At this point there was no damage to property, but below the town much fencing was washed away. Green river was higher than ever known. The floor of the bridge was washed out, but it was replaced Thursday. Columbia was shut out from all mails. It is hard to estimate the damage in the entire county, as many farmers lost their fencing, and we learn that many stacks of hay went with the tide. It is also reported that thousands of staves were lost on Green river. Cumberland river spread all over creation, and without doubt stave dealers lost heavily.

Kentucky maintained in 1912 its record of the largest producer of tobacco among the States of the Union. The area of Kentucky land planted in tobacco last year, according to the Bureau of Statistics of the Department of Agriculture, was 441,600 acres as compared with 345,000 in 1911 and 523,000 in 1910. The nearest approach to Kentucky's tobacco acreage last year was 1S7.000 acres in Virginia. North Carolina ranked third with an acreage of 179,000. Kentucky's yield per acre in 1912 is given by the Department of Agriculture as 7S0 pounds, as against 8S0 pounds in 1911 and 810 in 1910. The total yield of the State, therefore, is computed at 342,980,000 pounds in 1912 as against 303,000.000 in 1911 and in 1910. Virginia was second among the States in production of tobacco as well as acreage, yielding last great deal of fencing. ear 112,200,000 pound North CaroIt is reported that on Casey's creek j lina's output was 110,9S0,000 pounds. any number of stacks of hay went with No other State produced more than the tide. 80,000,000 pounds.

Dear Editor: Your editorial in the News of Dec, 25, 1912, looks good to a man riding a high horse, but why should you, as a leading man of your county, charge our forefathers of being stingy old fogies, the very people that give the principal part of the support to the Adair Coun. ty News. Now, we in this district, are advocates of good roads, but 9 to 1 are strictly opposed to bonding the county under any and all circumstances. Issue bonds, build roads, build roads and issue bonds, and bankrupt the couuty in a very few years. We would be in the shape that our sister county of Taylor is in at this time. You say many will oppose every move that means expense. It is impossible to change their minds. No appeals will reach them, no emergencies can stir their souls from away back in the 70's. There were a few men in Taylor riding high horses that had the same y opinion, but most any old thing can change their minds.

SHAKESPEARE AS AN ACTOR. Ha Evidently Was Not a Player of Any The Gentle Cynic. ! . Then He Hooked Bigger Game and Had an Exciting Time. A singular fish story is told In the East Indian papers. A fisherman started for the river, accompanied by n shikari, carrying a rifle for use in ca.se of an encounter with big game. The fisherman in a short time landed a large fish and then' moved up stream to another pool. On his way he passed a ravine and caught sislit of an enormous tiger. In a panic the fisherman concealed himself behind a pile of rocks and was flattering himself that he had escaped fish observation when the... fell from his . nanus m iun view or tne tiger. The fish was floundering in the road, and the tiger instantly pounced on it and carried it off. But the hook still held, and as soon as the tiger felt the resistance of the line he gave his head an impatient shake, which resulted in the harpooning of his upper lip. At this critical moment the enraged animal saw the crouching fisherman, who was totally unnerved by his dan- gerous position, and actually began to play the tiger as he would a fish, The tiger stopped for a moment in apparent amazement at such audacity, and In that Instant the shikari came on the scene wlth his riue and sent a the brute's bIn.-- St JulI?fc hru works or my achievements, even of my mistakes, any more than-i- s lar ! ...... , i ; j Globe-Democr- at ' - i enl-cie- nt ; 1 - p i j i - I e.

"Well. sir. what is it?" was the re- Wffli y ;5?

"in the learned author's work which we are now perusing I observe the following remark," and then he quoted. The class saw that fun was at hand and began to laugh. ""Well, what of it?" asked the father, with a merry twinkle in his eye. "Why," continued the son. "in another work of the same learned author, entitled 'On the Limitation of Human Responsibility.' I find the following passage." He quoted again. Clearly the two passages were irreconcilable. The boys were delighted to see that the doctor was in a trap and broke into loud laughter. ""Well, what of it?" asked the doctor, and his eyes twinkled still more merrily. "Why," said the son. with the utmost gravity, "it has occurred to me that I should like to know how the learned author reconciles the two statements." "Oh," said the father, "that Is simple enough.

VjJ ??, IV '4&& W A Queer Trade That Enriched Cato and Crassus In Ancient Rome. One of the strangest businesses In ancient Rome is mentioned by Juvenal in his" "Satires." and we hear of it also from historians. It consisted of buying houses on lire. The speculator hurried to the scene attended by slaves carrying bags of money and others carrying tools, judged the chances of salvage and made a bid to the distracted house owners, who were glad to accept anything as a rule. The bargain struck in all haste this earliest of fire assurers set his slaves to work and secured what lie could. Sometimes even he put out the flames and so made a coup. It was a business for capitalists, but the poorest who speculated in a small way could hardly lose if he had presence of mind enough to grasp the chances. Thus Cato the elder and, above all. Crassu3 laid the foundations of their svealth. The latter had a passion for such gambling. He gradual:;.- collected a force of carpenters, masons and such slaves, of course which artificers reached 500 men. Not only did he buy houses on fire, buc also, enlarging upon the common practice, lie made a bid for those adjoining which stood in danger. Eis proposals were commonly welcome, so hel;!ess were the peoplt and so great the peril. Cy this means Crassus became the greatest owner of house property in Home. - Mil iU'e ;'.iil r "'mm ;i,- - ombmation cut if you will write Ij Will praclice in this and adjoining counties.
